Q: Is it possible to bake idli dosa batter in a regular muffin pan and bake it rather than steaming it. If so, at what temperature should I preheat the oven and how long I need to bake it. Thanks G

A: Yes, you surely can bake idlis in muffin pans.

But you need to bake them in a water bath. You need to pour water (preferably warm or hot) into a large baking pan ( it should be larger than your muffin pan). Then fill your muffin pan with the batter and place this in the baking dish. Take care to make sure the water doesnt get in the muffin pan.

Preheat to 350. You might have to bake for 30 - 40 mins. Just make sure you keep checking after the first 20 mins.


Q: I have a question about the way to serve the Hyderabadi dish 'Qubani ka Meetha'. I have seen the dish served two ways: custard and qubani in two separate dishes, and they are layered in a cup(with cream on top) just before serving. The other way is to layer the custard and qubani and cream in the serving dish itself before serving it. Ideally, I would like to layer them all in one dish. I am cooking for a group of 15 people. My question is if I layer it ahead of time, will it all get mixed up and become like one big messy goop while serving? Will this still taste good though? I guess what I am trying to say is that I really want to do the layering, but am I taking a risk? Any experience, tips, advice would help... P.S: I am not interested in serving it with icecream.

Will qubani ka meetha become soggy if I layer the custard and qubani in one dish?
Yes, you can layer it without mixing up all the layers.

Make sure all the seperate layers (qurbani ka meetha, custard and cream) are all really cold. It would work out better if you keep the cream - I guess you'll be using whipped cream - in the freezer so that it stays nice and stiff.

Once youve done the layering, keep it back in the fridge, and take it out just before serving.

Make sure you jag up your fridge, so that its really cold, and this way you wont end up with a messy goop.
